Cincinnati Walks for Kids: Wild New Location… Same Great Cause

Cincinnati Walks for Kids: Wild New Location… Same Great Cause

It’s officially time to register for Cincinnati Walks for Kids 2013 and we are so very excited to share with you the news that this year we will be walking at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden!

With the move to the Zoo for 2013, just about everything will be new this year. Everything except the great cause and the fantastic day of celebration and family fun.

Here’s the rundown on the basics for Cincinnati Walks for Kids 2013:

Who: Cincinnati Children’s and you!

What: Cincinnati Walks for Kids – a scenic half-mile stroll through the Zoo to celebrate and raise money for Cincinnati Children’s.

For participants wondering about walking up (or down!) the big “bear hill” at the Zoo while pushing wheelchairs or strollers, don’t worry. While you’ll be free to explore the entire zoo on your own after the walk, our route avoids the big hills to ensure an enjoyable experience for everyone.

When: Saturday, Sept. 28. Check-in starts at 3 pm, the walk starts at 4:30 pm.

Where: Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden (Directions and Parking)

Why: To raise money to support the Cincinnati Children’s mission and to celebrate all of our patients and their families.

How: Register to walk, join a team or create a team. Registration is $25 for adults and $5 for children 17 years old and younger. All registered participants will receive an official 2013 Cincinnati Walks for Kids T-shirt, a personal online fundraising page and exclusive admission to the Zoo for the evening of the walk.

For those of you who have walked with us before, there are a lot of changes in store, but the walk will still be what it always has been – a celebration of our patients and their families. Plus, this year everyone will have an opportunity to enjoy the Zoo following our celebratory walk through the park!

You can keep up with Cincinnati Walks for Kids information via Facebook and Twitter over the next several months. We’ll be using #cincywalks and encourage you to do the same. And all of the information you need for registration, fundraising and planning can be found at

We hope to see you on September 28th and please know that our team is available to answer any of your questions all the way through walk day!
